Good morning!


Emily communicates with Greenpeace by writing letters. 


So you are going to be writing a letter to Greenpeace!

LO: to write a letter to Greenpeace


Firstly, lets think about how a letter looks. What special features does a letter have? (Discuss with a grown up)


  • Schools address
  • Greenpeace address
  • Begin with Dear
  • End with From, Love, or Yours sincerely


Here are a few examples to look at:


Look at the letters and discuss the features you can see with an adult. Are there similarities? Are there differences?


Lets start by writing the two addresses in your books or on paper. Why do you think you need to write two?

Its because you are writing to a company (Greenpeace). You would'nt have to do this if you were writing to friends or family.


Write the schools address in the top right hand corner and Greenpeace address on the left hand side under the schools address as shown below. Be sure to give yourself space and not cram it in.

Well done!


You are going to be writing this letter to Greenpeace pretending you are Emily from the story or somebody else. You are going to use your imaginations and pretend that you have found a living sea creature in a pond in your garden!


I now want you to think about who you would like to be in your letter? You can be Emily, yourself, or make up another name. Then I want you to have a think about a type of sea creature that you have found in your pond. It could be a dolphin, a seal, a walrus, a shark etc. Make  note of these on some scrap paper as you will need these for tomorrows lesson.
